Haiku from Islam




      full moon
         his birthday passes
              with some light sprinkles


This is the month of Rebiulevvwel in the Islamic Calendar, and the 9-10th of this month is the birthday of Mohammed (saws). The full moon is always the night of the 14th, so his birthday is always just before the full moon. [This year it coincides with passover in the both the Jewish and in the Christian calendars (Easter is the English word for Passover- in other languages usually 'paschalia' in one form or another is used for the Christian holy day.) That is a mere coincidence this year as the Islamic calander retrogrades ten days every year short of the international calendar.]
